Thank you for visiting the iPads in Education website.

I have been leading technology applications in business and education for over 25 years and I'm currently working as an independent educational technology consultant to a number of K-12 schools - both large and small. I also advise and give workshops to administrators, parents and teacher groups about technology and its impact on the future of education. I was recently invited to meet in Athens with the Prime Minister and Education Minister of Greece to consult on ways in which they could modernize their education system through the use of technology and 21st century pedagogical practices.

The magic of technology lies in its ability to empower and connect people. It's role in education should be transparently woven into the fabric of new pedagogical models that stress modern skills and requirements and graduate students that will be independent, life-long learners.

Schools can no longer afford to remain certification mills that deliver slivers of content to students and then require them to regurgitate it back in order to pass arbitrary assessment. The world around us is changing exponentially. My hope is that we can re-envision the role of educational institutions in order to remain relevant in the rapidly evolving landscape of life in the 21st century.

Creating and Managing Digital Portfolios

Posted on February 21, 2014 at 12:30pm 2 Comments

Polls continually reveal that employers are more interested in what you can do over what you studied and traditional resumes are slowly giving way to digital portfolios as the primary gauge of your employability. A portfolio is both a container and a presentation platform for your…


Creating a Classroom Studio with an iPad and a Green Screen

Posted on February 14, 2014 at 12:00pm 0 Comments

One way to depict the cycle of education is that it moves between the development of learning and the subsequent expression of understanding ... and the amazing growth of inexpensive mobile technology tools is affording learners the ability to communicate their understanding in ever more creative and personalized manners. Media is moving center stage (yes, the pun was fully intended) and what once required tens of thousands of dollars in equipment and training can now be accomplished with an…


Creating Interactive Video for Engaged Learning

Posted on February 5, 2014 at 10:00am 0 Comments

      The value of video as a medium for learning is widely accepted. Let's say you need help learning how to change the hard drive on your computer. Most of us would get out a computer and Google "changing a hard drive". The search results in millions of results. The first few appear in the image below.…


Animating Your Classroom

Posted on January 17, 2014 at 3:30pm 0 Comments

The art of animation - a series of related images that depict movement - is arguably several thousand years old. The use of equipment that could display animated images in rapid succession to create the illusion of motion is a more modern phenomenon that gained wide popularity with the development of motion pictures. Cartoons and animated movies from the studios of companies such as Disney, Warner Brothers, Nickelodeon and others have had a tremendous impact on…

Hi! I was given your contact from a colleague at Bialik who was given your info by your nephew. We have 30 iPads at the moment, they are being shared and not being used as single person devices, which we are struggling with at the moment. I have an iPads as well, and can see the value in them, but the multi user issue is huge at the moment. Looking forward to reading more on the ning. Michelle

Re: Membership numbers and options. I have been in the same boat and kept 3 ning sites - 2 small and 1 medium - at the same time I moved over to mixxt.com -members can easily be exported/imported - content not so easily. It was one of a list of options I got from an article about the changing conditions at ning:

* Buddypress (http://www.buddypress.org)
* Pligg (http://www.pligg.com/)
* Elgg (http://www.elgg.org/)
* LovdbyLess (http://lovdbyless.com/)
* Mixxt (http://www.mixxt.com/)
* Insoshi ( http://github.com/insoshi/insoshi)
* Xoops (http://www.xoops.org/)
* Community Engine (http://www.communityengine.org/)
* Astrospaces (http://sourceforge.net/projects/astrospaces/)

Hope this helps.
